Local Font


The wonderful world of fonts has truly turned the world wide web into a much more visually appealing place. The widespread use of fancy display fonts does come with a view downsides however, largely on the performance end. The localFont tool created by Jamie Caballero uses local storage functions to store the CSS for @font-face declarations.  The tool saves the font files as part of the CSS file allowing them to be accessed much faster than typical caching techniques. Browser support for the caching goes back to IE 8+ so you can feel comfortable using it on sites that don’t require legacy support.
